When I was pregnant with my son, I was craving a margarita– of course I didn’t want one in January after he was born!! 🙂 A margarita is the perfect warm weather cocktail– especially with guacamole. Although I am usually pleased with any margarita, this is our favorite recipe– a blend of many. We have simplified it recently to use agave nectar in place of simple syrup– so much easier when making just one or two cocktails.
- 1 1/2 oz tequila
- 3/4 oz cointreau or triple sec
- 1 1/2 T lime juice
- 1/2 T simple syrup or agave nectar
- coarse salt
- Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Serve on the rocks in lime juice and salt rimmed glasses.
